Tuckered Out

FX dude Mike Tucker mounts the stage in Bradford to talk Dwarf.

3 October, 2003

Mike Tucker - a man who has spent more time than is entirely reasonable crashing Starbugs, as well as wibbling about inside a Camille blob costume - will be appearing at the National Museum of Photography, Film & Television in Bradford, as part of 'Co-operative Young Film-makers 2003'.

With 'Inside Red Dwarf' Mike will be giving an in depth talk about how his team created some of the famous Red Dwarf effects, including how they built various ships, stirred up snowstorms and blew stuff up. He will be using behind the scenes footage and a number of never-seen-before slides to illustrate the talk, as well as subjecting himself to interrogation in a question and answer session. Tickets are completely free (we put that in bold, just so you got it), but booking is recommended as there are only 100 places.

To catch a glimpse of Dwarfian model magic, get up to Bradford for 12pm-1pm on Saturday October 11th. Book your place by calling the NMPFT Box Office on 01274 202040, and mention Co-operative Young Film-Makers. (Who also have some 30 other events in the offing - see their website for more.)

This news reaches us from event supporters The Three Bears, who fans will no doubt recall from their claymation additions to Tongue Tied back on the Smeg Outs video. These days, sisters Bryony Catlow, Cadi Catlow and Linnhe Catlow are award-winning animators and commercial producers. Their latest project, a Godfather parody called The Godson, has a Red Dwarf connection as Robert Llewellyn is lending his voice to the recently-completed project, playing Don Ravioli.

You can find out more about Co-Operative Young Film-Makers 2003 on their site, available via Links, where you'll also find a link to the Three Bears website.
